    Alameda Creek Restoration: Effect on Local Groundwater Supply

    The intention is to deepen a small portion of the Alameda Creek bed, which spans over 60 meters, with the aim of easing sediment transport and reducing the frequency of dredging. This will result in a local decline in groundwater levels, potentially influencing the interconnected system of groundwater infiltration linked to neighboring lakes and…

    Can Precipitation-Related Incidents on the French Railway Network be Predicted in Advance? : Internship Project Report

    To improve flood mitigation, the French Railways (SNCF-Réseau) would like to use short-term forecasts to predict when a precipitation-induced incident would occur on the railway network. This study explored whether precipitation-induced incidents on the SNCF network between 2018-2022 can be predicted in advance. Precipitation accumulations from a…

    Creating the Dutch One Health Shared Socio‑economic Pathways (SSPs)

    The world is changing, in terms of both climate and socio-economics. These changes have the potential to have a profound impact on the health of humans, animals and the environment, often grouped together as ‘One Health’. Humans, animals and the environment are closely interlinked and to determine realistic future vulnerabilities we must consider…

    Shallow‑subsidence vulnerability in the city of New Orleans, southern USA

    Land subsidence in the city of New Orleans (USA) and its surroundings increases flood risk, and may cause damage to buildings and infrastructure and loss of protective coastal wetlands. To make New Orleans more resilient to future flooding, a new approach for groundwater and subsidence management is needed. As a first step in developing such an…

    Beaver behaviour during high water regarding burrows in levees

    The beaver population has grown exponentially since its reintroduction in the Netherlands. The beaver digs their burrows in soil structures, including levees. This weakens the levees and causes them to lose their strength, endangering the safety of the levee. The beaver digs into the levee, especially when the water in the river rises rapidly.…

    Modelling of nutrient load scenarios and transboundary nutrient transport : a model study for OSPAR regions II, III and IV

    In this report, we calculated the relative contribution of 24 geographical groups of riverine sources and of atmospheric deposition, the Atlantic Ocean and outflow from the Baltic Sea to the nutrient concentrations in the OSPAR assessment areas in the NE Atlantic. The results showed that river plumes and some coastal assessment areas showed the…
